Guest beauty expert LEONARD DALY shares the products you need to get radiant skin …
Unfortunately, as we get older our skin begins to lose its ability to be radiant and we need to use skincare to help it. Retinoids are the best products you can use to help give your skin a more youthful glow. Almost every brand has a retinoid product now, which helps to smooth out your skin and make it more youthful and glowing. At the moment I am loving a Murad product that I picked up while on holiday in America. It is called Retinol Youth Renewal Serum and it is a potent formula that has a fast acting retinoid, a time release retinol, and a retinol booster. This sounds like a lot, but really it is a super gentle product. They claim that it has up to 250% more renewing power than traditional retinol – those are numbers I like!
There are also some incredible foundations on the market now that are designed to make your skin look even more youthful. Clarins launched one last month that is really beautiful. It’s called Everlasting Youth Fluid and is designed specifically to make your skin more radiant. But better than just making your skin look radiant it has actually been made in a lab. It has been three years in the making and it took 186 trials, so there is a lot of science in this magical jar, meaning that over time it will improve the texture of your skin.
I love nothing more than a product that double jobs. And what better than a foundation that will improve the texture and radiance of your skin. Another thing I love about Clarins is that they are trying to be sustainable and eco-responsible in the production of products and packaging. The glass is as eco-friendly as glass can be, and it is 100% made in Europe. It will be available from mid-August on counters nationwide, €40.
